A Tight Community
An Alumni Mentor
A Creative Dialogue
When computer science major Kaitlyn Brooks ’22 began planning her Honors thesis on digital art technology, she chose an art professor, Hannah S. Allen, as her adviser. Their dialogue between tech and art mirrored the interdisciplinary approach taken in all Honors College courses and was an eye-opening experience for student and teacher.
After graduating from Harvard Law School, John Miller ’12 organized a group of fellow Honors College grads who attended prestigious law schools to serve as mentors for Honors undergraduates. Rachel Vacca ’19 was just one of the students who achieved her dream with support from this network of helpful alumni.
